Perhaps my K-drama observation skill is slipping because I did not expect the plot development that presented itself in episode 16 of City Hunter. But before I get to that, here are my thoughts on some other stuff.
1. Yoon Sung’s mano-a-mano with Creepster
Me: The water bottle is the new spoon!
2. Yoon Sung requesting Nana to ignore him and forget him. And she complies.
Me: On the one hand, I like that Nana isn’t the clingy type. On the other hand, Nana and Yoon Sung… Break my heart, why don’t you? *tears*
3. Young Joo gate-crashing the dinner party of evil people.
Me: Man, sometimes I worry about this guy because his foolhardiness is gonna get him killed. (Oh wait, it already did.) But then, when he’s all up in the city hunter’s face, my concern switches to annoyance because I’m protective of Yoon Sung and am like, “Can’t you just leave him alone?”
4. Young Joo sneaking up on Yoon Sung while he’s safe-cracking at Jin Pyo’s.
Me: Does no one lock the house door around here anymore? *throws hands up in air*
As for the twist…
You know you’re a goner when it comes to K-dramas when your proudest moment of the week is successfully getting your friend hooked on City Hunter.
It all started with this impressive fanmade trailer for City Hunter, which I discovered via dangermousie.
(Special thanks to luchiaichigogirl for uploading the trailer.)
My friend is now two episodes ahead of me and she told me the other day that she’s obsessed (her word, not mine). Ahh, I guess this means that I’m a K-drama enabler and you know what? It feels so good! 🙂
I’m caught up with the latest episode of City Hunter. The drama continues to be nail-bitingly good, which makes it hard to wait for the next episode because darn it, those cliffhangers always leave me wanting more, more, MORE! After finishing episode 14, I was thinking that maybe City Hunter is a drama that is best watched marathon-style rather than weekly episodes. But then, I thought about how I marathoned 9 episodes of this baby in one day and also the fact that I have very little self-control when it comes to K-dramas, if all 20 episodes with English subtitles were available, I might just watch the whole thing in one go. Sleep? What sleep?
I recently checked out the newly aired K-drama Heartstrings and after watching episodes 1-2, I think that between this and City Hunter, July has unexpectedly became the K-drama month for me, which was what I anticipated May to be but it fell short of expectations. You know, after my high with Sungkyunkwan Scandal last year and current liking of Heartstrings, not to mention there’s also my immensely enjoyment of Nobuta wo Produce, I’m starting to think that youth dramas might be my thing, more so than the traditional romcom.
I recently saw X-Men: First Class in theater and besides enjoying the movie immensely, I walked out of the theater in a state of bliss because I discovered the amazingness that is James McAvoy. It is about 1:00 in the morning where I am and instead of sleeping, I’m in Youtube-verse, watching interviews clips of this charismatic man.
I WANT THAT MAGAZINE.
I love how his brows furrowed when interviewed, as though he was focusing all his attention on listening to the interviewer’s questions.

“So the make-up artist…”
I love watching his interviews with Craig Ferguson because they looked so comfortable around each other and could talk about anything under the sun. Perhaps it’s because they’re fellow Scotsmen.
(Special thanks to detailsdotcom, moviesireland, jeannewolfshollywood, EmmenezMoi, and 0mniscient for uploading the interview clips.)
So I guess it’s official… I’ve embarked on a McAvoyage and I don’t think I want it to end. His accent, talent, eloquence, and all-around awesomeness… *melts into goo*
Ever since Sungkyunkwan Scandal ended last year, I hadn’t found a drama that was as addicting and exciting as SKKS. Until now.
City Hunter, it is so good! Seriously, I marathoned 9 episodes in one day and didn’t sleep until 3 a.m. because this drama gets better and better with each episode. Interestingly, City Hunter also stars Park Min Young, playing another kickass character. I think she’s fast becoming one of my favorite young actresses.
Also, I love this song from the OST.
